MADRE - Global women's rights 

You're Needed Now More Than Ever

The Trump administration’s “cruelty budget” will slash life-sustaining programs that promote health, peace and human rights around the world. It’s up to us — MADRE and YOU — to be there for women and families caught in the crosshairs of this administration’s dangerous and heartless policies.

MADRE partners with grassroots women on the frontlines of war and disaster. Together, we meet urgent needs and create lasting change.

 

We Partner for Social Change

MADRE partners with grassroots women's groups facing war, disaster and their aftermath. Together, we meet urgent needs and build women's capacity to create positive social change.

We Advocate for Human Rights

MADRE applies the tools of human rights advocacy to create social change with our partners. We make international law accountable to the people it's meant to serve.

Join our call to end policies of xenophobia and authoritarianism. Stand up with us for gender justice.

When bombing decimated Aleppo, thousands of Syrian families fighting for their lives in the besieged city had no access to medical care and nowhere to turn.

We called on your help. And thanks to MADRE supporters like you, we were able to respond with lifesaving aid and care. 

Every year, the UN hosts its Commission on the Status of Women (CSW), but this year was different. That's because the global women’s movement today navigates a political landscape tilting dramatically to the right. And that's why we convened a strategic exchange among women's rights advocates: to offer ideas and strategies to navigate the backlash and to advance our rights. 

 

With you and with MADRE, our grassroots partners protect and provide for the most vulnerable. They build new skills and grow as community leaders. And they bring their demands to policymakers and advocate for rights, resources and results.
